Logical Curating: Unraveled: Textiles Reconsidered

Kate Bonansinga

This article describes the planning and development of the 2016 exhibition Unraveled: Textiles Reconsidered as a case study to investigate contemporary art curating as research; curatorial methodology as an approach to problem solving; and curatorial process as a driver of curatorial decision making. Bonansinga guest curated Unraveled: Textiles Reconsidered for the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, where it was on view from 22 April 2016 to 14 August 2016. As a component of the argument the article iterates the CAC’s institutional mission and educational art making workshops. The logic of how, when and why curatorial decisions were made can be applied to many other types of creative decision-making.
